I would agree but I've seen consoles doing that, too. Not drivers but updates. My nephew will come over to play and every time the first half hour is installing updates to games. It's just so much trouble anymore. Exactly. I usually wait a while, too, it's just even when I wait the launcher is still there. I lucked out and got Cyberpunk 2077 through GOG, so no launchers, no 3rd party junk, but glorious gameplay. I just got Need for Speed: Rivals for dirt cheap, too ($8!), but through Steam, and I had to install the EA app to play, registered through that, added an authenticator app, and then the EA app had to link to my Steam account. On the plus side, Rivals is just as fun as I remembered it, I just don't like going through all of that rigamarole for a game.
